Balkan Music &
Dance Workshops
Virtual Camp

While we regret the cancelation of both our Mendocino and Iroquois Springs workshops due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are excited to have presented our first-ever, completely online Virtual Camps, each with three days of immersive classes, live-music performances, and community gatherings. Virtual Camp West Coast (July 17-19, 2020) was a great success, with 350 people registered. Our East Coast Virtual Camp (August 14-16) is now complete, with over 380 attendees!

Registration is now closed for both camps. Stay tuned for more EEFC-sponsored virtual events & classes!

Mendocino Folklore Camp - International Folk Dance & Music

June 18, 2016 – June 25, 2016

Celebrating our 54th year! Mendocino Folklore Camp is a wonderful place to unwind and learn while exploring the worlds cultures & traditions through its food, folk dance & music. Our beautiful nature setting in the Redwood forests of California afford us a very special place to gather and celebrate. We are a smaller camp of about 100 people, so our class/workshop sizes are more intimate with more one on one time with the teachers. PLUS we have daily happy hour folklore celebrations that are a lot of fun, where our campers and staff dress up for our party-theme & activities of the day. All this, plus sing along's, folklore sessions, nightly dance parties with live music (from our fabulous MFC Camp Band & friends), a late night Kafana (International/Balkan Cabaret) and incredible food (we are known for our excellent food). Hope you can join us!
